Back in 1984, readers of Marvel Comics (specifically the Machine Man series by Tom DeFalco & Herb Trimpe) were introduced to Arno Stark, the Iron Man of hte far-flung future year of 2020.
Now the actual year 2020 is upon us and a different version of Arno (the one from the main Marvel Universe) will be donning a suit as Iron Man in 2020 (in the six-part Iron Man 2020 event series) but he won’t be alone in celebrating this new year and the start of a new decade.
Marvel has unveiled a slew of variant covers to debut in December featuring various characters from the different titles done up in the almost steampunkish gear filled vision of a 2020 future that debuted back in the 1980s.
